it and analyze it. look at what happened in benghazi. that's another issue. we knew that it was a hot spot, but we didn't have intelligence that they were going to attack. >> greta: therein proves my point. that was another intelligence where we might have the hardest working people in the world, the best in the world but the fact is intelligence failures do happen with even the best. that's why it's very hard to have a lot of sort of comfort in terms of what happens with these, you know, chemical weapons should assad leave. >> no question. >> greta: mistakes happen. >> we can't be the sheriff for the whole world, so we have to work with other countries an other allies. as serious as the situation is in syria, we've got to work with russia. >> greta: let me ask you a quick question. you've actually met president assad. tell me your impression. >> on our way to iraq we had to go -- we were asked to go and stop by to see assad. this was right after, maybe six months after president obama was elected. the whole purpose was to get assad who had the relationship with iran to work with iran to b

in benghazi. catherine herridge is life in washington with the latest. >> reporter: al-qaeda has strengthened their bases in libya and the in the broader region of north africa to the extent that the administration is investigating whether it has the authority to target the drone strategy in the tribal areas of pakistan as well as yemen. after the terrorist attack in benghazi on the consulate, analysts say al-qaeda has sought to capitalize to use its so-called victory to raise money and also recruit. there is evidence that the growth of the al-qaeda affiliate in libya is part of a broader campaign by senior leadership in pakistan to establish a global presence through its affiliates and that the decision to send al-qaeda operatives to libya was made and executed as long ago as 2011. now analysts describe an emerging arc of instability. earlier the week the head of defense operations in africa summed up al-qaeda's reach. >> whether it's adjusting al-shabaab and al-qaeda affiliate in east africa, principal my somalia, a growing extremist network in libya across the region into northern mali and

is a difficult transition. libya, we obviously know what happened there at benghazi and a country that is unstable. even tunisia isn't doing that well. when you have crisis and chaos there isn't an opportunity for american leadership. what you would need is a president who would have the grand strategy for what do i want to see happen in the world in the next four years and how am i going to get there? >> the strategy seems to be america withdrawal and retreat in the world. we are r going to cut the gash and the defense budget and we are pulling out of afghanistan. we are already out of iraq. we have add do indicated doing anything in syria. the message around the world is that the u.s. is going to be much -- it is going to lead a lot less i than it has. >> we had the right strategy. we could have the right strategy and there isn't an opportunity. >> in the 1920s it game clear that the victorious powers of the united states, france, britain weren't prepared to enforce the global order that they had imposed at thefo versailles settlement. and it became obvious to countries like ge

're actually not as nimble as they need to be. i look at benghazi and answers questions about the talking points, but the bigger policy deployed when he set up is how do we influence the next faith? ambassador chris stevens who is killed to honor his memory. redeemer people speaking arabic to understand the types of different political forces we could work with and as we actually need to kill. right now the washington debate isn't about that. it's a little intellectual, narrow in focus, getting the facts straight is important. but were not well poised on egypt and other countries in the region and collectively to have the role in shaping it. >> felix must thought from daily paper. >> thank you, gentlemen. and they said very much enjoy the cultural debate. i hesitantly stepped into the family feud. if i can make two very quick points. what i thought was missing, especially deadly to your firm broth and brett perhaps is this path leads us down a road that would not be to democracy. but what is the alternative path? research to try to run a dictatorship and aligning the united states the tyr

in benghazi. it was involved in attacks and planned attacks in europe. a lot of people forget they tried, actually in the 1990s to fly a plane in the eiffel tower much like what happened in new york on 9/11. so it's a very, virulent group that certainly threatens us and our allies. jenna: your expertise on this, peter, what do you think about our military intervention? we'll explain what that means in a moment. what do you think about us getting involved here? is this a good decision now with the tiling? what your thoughts? >> we need to recognize the threat and we need to prepare to do something but we need to really prepare the terrain. i'm very concerned that we're rushing into something that's very half-baked. the african force that is talked about is a little over 3300 men. which is a laughable amount when you're talking about an area the size of texas. it is not a serious force. so they need our help. they need some training but they're not adequate. so until there's really commitment to put a force in there, that can actually do something, we run the risk of jumping into something

cannot nominate susan rice and not because of the benghazi scandal but because of her previous tenure at state where she doesn't have a good record and her u.n. record is not good. we don't have time to go through the particulars, but i think senator kerry would not only be the policy and political wiser choice. >> everything i've read about ambassador rice, she's imminently qualified for the job. >> you guys can continue this conversation at home right now. thanks to both of you for joining us. >>> the royal line of succession could soon be adding a new name. britain is buzz right now over the news the royal family is about to add another member. ll t in time for christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.

. there's no question that benghazi continues to be litigated. even on the democratic side, there is some division on this. i've talked to democratic senators who have questioned whether she has the standing, the stature, to be secretary of state. so obviously there's some division about how people view susan rice. but here's the bottom line. she's very close to the president of the united states. she is a key voice in his national security team. that's what could ultimately win the day. john kerry has been campaigning hard for it. he's done everything this administration has asked in their first term. overseas, been quite engaged as chairman of the foreign relations committee. so he's certainly a very strong candidate. but at this point, even people close to the president suggest there's just a bit of a question mark about how much of a fight he wants and how much it will come down to getting somebody he believes in and he's close to into that job. >> congressman cleaver, your thoughts on susan rice as a potential nominee. >> well, i think susan rice is imminently qualified and capable o
at the -- you know, in her term, leading the benghazi situation, and also tim geithner's numbers are so bad because of the terrible fiscal situation we're in. and i think susan rice, i think the president stood behind her, as long as he possibly could, and just couldn't stand behind her anymore. i think what we're seeing, already, with the hagel potential nomination, is i think a lot of the republicans are withholding their judgment. they are -- they don't like the way he was critical of the iraq situation. but many of them, what i'm hearing, is they're reserving judgment. but i think it is good for the administration to throw names out there. to see what kind of feedback they may be getting. but we all know that the nomination process is a tough one, no matter who is put out there to face the questions. >> alice, senator mike crapo of idaho was arrested this week in virginia, for dui, and he's found himself now back in the hometown newspaper in idaho, being compared, at least favorably, to former senator larry craig. listen to this and let's look at the words -- oh, i can't read it. all ri
